I don't know why visitors would want to visit a local graveyard, doesn't sound like a great day out. Probably only suitable for friends and family of the deceased. Not sure why it is on TripAdvisor.

We visited the Republican Plots in the Cemetery, my God so many of them, each tells it's own tale, all sad. How is it possible that such a small area in Northern Ireland had to suffer so much to get their Civil Rights

The City Cemetery is a constantly evolving living history of Derry from the mid 1800s. I often visit for genealogical purposes and also for photography (photographers should experience the fogs, early morning sun, etc. from its vantage point) and a leisurely stroll through the history...More

It has been a cemetery for well over 100 years and the headstones vary from the simple to huge. Interesting paths which wind through the decades and there's a history to be read.
